Project Type Transfer of Innovation
Modular mobile education: science experiments for science teachers
The aim of the project is to reach out to the science teachers in rural regions and to offer them the means of teaching science through a Mobile Science Laboratory to do face-to-face training.
The flexibility and accessibility of mobile science laboratories (MSL) together with science fairs will provide opportunities for science teachers in rural region to support them with vocational education and will raise their pedagogical skills as well.
The objectives are;
- to prepare a network of teachers interested in laboratories and science teaching techniques,
- to provide medium for discussion to make it possible to exchange ideas and experiences,
- to obtain some new ideas for science fairs,
- to develop internet supported training courses for the use of science teachers in rural regions.
Target Group : Science teachers
The needs of science teachers especially in rural region are:
-vocational education about experimental science education (some sample Mobile Science Laboratory experiments for vocational education of science teachers are listed in ANNEX 11 file in Turkish)
-an internet based network like Hands on Science in Europe
-to establish a dialogue through continuing education with European science teachers and educators
-to share ideas about experimental education with other professional colleagues,
-to be informed about virtual laboratories, science fairs, science museums, international conferences, thematic workshops, educational projects, curricula and other experiences etc..
